Советский учитель на фоне школьной повести: корпусная перспектива

Детские чтения. 2014. Т. 6. № 2. С. 112-126.

The aim of this article is to analyze the discursive background for the characters of teachers in the Soviet school story of the afterwar period. The 1,8 million words corpus for the study was compiled of the novels about school and schooling by 37 authors, written in  1940-s — 1980-s. The contents of the episodes where the   keywords (headmaster, deputy headmaster, teacher, female teacher)
 were mentioned was analyzed automatically with the help of probabilistic topic modeling (LDA). Topics significantly more or
 less common in these episodes than in the whole corpus were used to characterize discursive context for the keywords. Judging by the thematic profile the term ‘female teacher’ is opposed to all the rest, Meaningful contrasts distinguishing the thematic ptofiles of the terms are: disourse of the upbringing and everyday schooling, komsomol and pioneers, emotions and gender.
